Virtual Community Consultation on the Rezoning Application: 1540-1550 Bloor Street West (N/W corner of Bloor and Dundas Street West)

City Planning is holding a Virtual Community Consultation Meeting on the Zoning Amendment and Rental Housing Demolition Applications for 1540-1550 Bloor Street West. It will be an opportunity to learn more about this application, ask questions and share your comments.
The application proposes to amend the Zoning By-law to allow a 25-storey (80.6 metres high, excluding mechanical penthouse), mixed-use building with commercial uses on the ground floor and residential uses above with 327 dwelling units of which, 12 would be affordable rental replacement units, 25,638 square metres of residential gross floor area and 807 square metres of commercial gross floor area.  The proposed total gross floor area of 26,445 square metres would result in a density of 10.72 times the area of the lot.  In addition, an application for Rental Housing Demolition and Conversion has been submitted concurrently.

Note: the applicant has appealed the zoning amendment application to Ontario’s Local Planning Appeal Tribunal  (LPAT). City Planning staff will submit a Request for Directions Report with  recommendations to Toronto East York Community Council (TEYCC) on October 15th. Your feedback will help inform the City’s evaluation of the proposed development.

The Virtual Community Consultation meeting will take place on Monday, September 14th, 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. and will be online and phone-in only.
